A File Manager software tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels could offer you more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is difficult to use can make it more annoying and hard for you to handle your website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
